Auroral Chorus II: The Music of the Magnetosphere
This Auroral Chorus II album, originally released as 1040 CD copies in the Millennium year of 2000 (as a single 52 minute CD set), and this self-created and mastered album follows up the wildly successful double-CD set Irdial-Discs' "Electric Enigma" released in London, UK, in 1996. However, in addition to the track-descriptions available with the CD-version, this Internet Archive online-version contains a PDF-book with more elaborate explanations of the phenomena, photos of the various 1996 to 1998 recording expeditions undertaken, and additional audio-files made from the source archive cassette tapes and also many files not even related much to the original CD-release but they present a bit of the acoustic and radio field-recordings I enjoy doing.
I also have included herein a few other PDF booklets and image-files of how you can listen to these signals, too.
You can also download "Auroral Chorus III: The Music of the Magnetosphere" limited-release double-CD set on Internet Archive - Parts 1 and 2.
Auroral Chorus IV: Desert Whistlers, Trains, and Loma Prieta Earthquake audio archive from October 1989: I have uploaded (on 29 Sept. 2010) a NEW Album here at IA.
In February 2014: I began uploading audio-file copies of some of my tape-cassette archives of the three natural VLF radio recording expeditions undertaken that pertain to this album (i.e. all of the 20 Tracks of Auroral Chorus II have been made from recordings made during these particular three expeditions done in June and August 1996 as well as June 1998, the latter just enough northward to Waterton Park, Alberta - one of the most favorite of Canadian National Parks I have loved to camp in).

Subject: Auroral Chorus: The Music of the Magneosphere
Nonetheless, fascinating, educational, and beautifull. I first heard these recordings about ten years ago.
Mr S.P. McGreevy is to be commended for his unselfish furthering of the Radio Arts...he has motivated,and inspired countless others.
In this age of "Tech Gadgets" and this obnoxious cell phone chorus imposed upon one in every language imaginable, in the public square it is refreshing to listen to something as unique and beautifull as this.
Other possible topics of Radio interest could in include: "Numbers Stations" (Yes, the damn things are real, I've listened to tons of them, Nasa's project "Jove" and "Inspire" and finally: the Air Force Global Communications system (Remotely controlled from Andrews AFB). Yes that's real to, I've heard it many times on the listed "Public Frequencies" Go Figure!
Since getting into this hobby, I'll never be the same! However, yes I will reniew my Amateur Operators License.
We are thankful for these beautiful recordings Mr. McGreevy! Also, that you share them with us for free. You have introduced VLF phenomena for the generations in the 21st Century. Wishing you the best from Hungary!
